Affleck being taller is a fact, period. Batman looking far more "Beastly" than Superman should be okay to everyone. It's part of his gimmick.
I have no problem with Batman looking more "beastly". Superman is going to have the more idealistic/aesthetic physique of the two. I don't need a Batfleck shirtless scene, Cav-El can fulfill that role.

Sorry. I don't see that. he's wearing a shirt and it can look tricky sometimes. He looks good.

Camera tricks are an amazing thing. There are a number of actors way shorter than people realize because their made to look much taller in their movies.

The height will not matter. Snyder is the one who decides how each hero are gonna look.
To be more detailed, I suppose I should state that I think that Snyder NEEDS to make Affleck more of a visual than Cavill.

Superman has damn near every power imaginable, they need to at least, in the eyes of the audience, maintain Batman as at least looking more intimidating than Superman in this reality.

Just by looking to each one pics, we know which type of physiques they'll have. Both awesome on his OWN STYLE. one for fighting criminals and the other to represent the powers he has. Each one has different kind of shape and it's obvious just by looking at some pics.
If you noticed, Batman in the official pic has a different type of physique than Superman.

I've always preferred a leaner Batman who is quick and nimble. But again, I can see a bigger build working for an older Batman especially.

Sorry if you feel attacked Pickle El. It's just a product of constantly hearing from people who seem to have different standards for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel/JL franchise because they don't like it. I keep hearing that Supes is shorter than Bats thing as if it's the first height deviation from the comics ever. I'm fine with people who didn't like MOS thinking this next film is going to be awful and even hating on it but I just can't keep quiet when people are making **** up and double standards are implemented.

Your post was harmless enough on it's face but I and others are in a heighten state of defense, kinda like I imagine The Amazing Spider-Man 2 fans are like because of the mixed reaction to that film. It happens, it's ****** and it shouldn't happen but it does.

Good progress by Affleck. I think he's done more with these new guys in a few months than what he did with Rehan Jalali in half a year.

Though it remains a question mark to why didnt they simply make him train with Gym Jones. That way no fan would have any doubt because Gym Jones have a great track record.

I hope someone asks him in an interview why he didn't train with Gym Jones when all the other series stars - Cavill, Gadot, Crowe, Anje, Shannon did.

Hes been training with IPF the whole time since The Town. Rehan is either lying or the nutritionist.

Shannon and Crowe werent even in that greag of shape though. And the leads in 300 rise of an empire didnt live up to the original 300 either. Gym Jones is a great gym but given Afflecks time constraints because of Gone Girl I dont think theyd do much better than the guys at IPF.

Jelali was definitely involved. He definitely trained Affleck for The Town. The Town's official workout video has Jalali demonstrating Affleck's workout and diet. And Affleck has even endorsed Jalali.

I think Jalali was involved early on, early on he used to tweet a lot about Affleck's training and progress but off late he has stopped, I believe he was fired and these new guys were taken on.

While it is true that in the physical department 300 2 did not live up to the original 300, that's more down to the actors than to the training of Gym Jones which was still world class. The actors as has been implied did not put as much into it, or were not able to put as much into it, as the original cast did. Hence the less impressive results.

But Gym Jones still raised the bar with 300 and again did exemplary work with Cavill on MOS. Shannon and Crowe's transformation was not nearly as important as Cavill's and for Cavill, they delivered.

Ben Afflecks trainer for The Town and Argo was Walter Norton jr founder of IPF, Credited in the movies credits and imdb. If you even watch the rehan video you see the description says walter norton as his trainer.

Sorry for the crappy spelling im on my phone.

Credit where it is due. Both were responsible for his physique in The Town.

Bodybuilding.com lists both in their official tie-up with the film.

Though I now think he exaggerated his role on BvS and is not as involved as he made it out to be.

That clears it up. Rehan is a sports nutrionist. Most likely responsible for what Affleck is taking and eating.

Maybe the film schedule change was also a factor for Rehan leaving.

Unless you're doing the ****ing Crossfit, I doubt anyone on here is in better shape than Affleck.
